Teh Squeaky Wheel
A thread without kitties might as well be dead.
Need help here! I can not make new threads. When I try to go to the page to set up a post I get a page about blocks, permissions and such. I have a thread up for Thursday and Thursday night but that is it until I can get in. I put those up Tuesday.
Hi, Mac. WP has a new editor called Gutenberg…far different from the old WP editor. I’m sure you can figure it out, ’cause I kinda did. Make sure the tab on the right is on “document” rather than “blocks.”
I will look , thanks.
OK, I think I have most of it. I don’t know how to center captions under the image yet but I will work on it. I have both posts for Friday and the first for Saturday. Thank you MIGHTY BLUE GLOVE for your patience with this lowly muggle.
Hi, Wheelizens! Good morning, night-owl Mac! Mac -- I was -- seemingly -- able to post and schedule a test thread for Saturday (which I’ve since deleted); I’ll try to put up something “for realz” later. Probably won’t make any difference, but have you tried logging out and then back in? Asinine local headline of the day: Marijuana grow house bust nets $35 million in drugs, 16 arrests: https://www.gwinnettdailypost.com/local/marijuana-grow-house-bust-nets-million-in-drugs-arrests/article_9a6c0b07-6166-5f41-9a28-03d4588d95fe.html Not much detail in the article: On March 14, after months of work, detectives executed 15 search warrants in Gwinnett, Henry, and Clayton counties, which netted the 16 arrests.

Maybe they can sell that grass to distributors in CA where it’s legal and make some more money?
Good morning Fatwa. Did you get to the page we used to make threads before or did you get a different page and figure it out?
I did try logging out and back in and getting to the thread page every way I could. I closed and reopened the sight. I jest keep getting a page that talks about blocks and permissions and I am afraid to screw something up.
I just took a quick look and the blocks referred to are things like text blocks, paragraph blocks, bold, lists, etc. They aren’t permission-type blocks. If you add a block, the standard text formatting tools appear. As our blue-gloved TSWadministrator mentioned, in the far upper-right, if you choose “Document” instead of “Blocks” you can just type as you normally would.
Hope this helps.
Thank you, Paddy. I started to see that as I played with it. I had not seen the Block/Document tab until I clicked settings. I think I have most sorted out and seem to have posts scheduled. I think I am over complicating the image but it seems the only way to use Photobucket images and it works. Have not figured out how to center a caption under the picture but I will keep looking. Thank you. The use of “block” and the permissions box below had me gunshy.
I totally understand!
Hi Fatwa and Mac -- happy day, GN!
Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Mac, Fatwa, Sven, and TSWadministrator!!!!11!!
We got absolutely nothing out of that storm, yesterday. I hear parts of the 91 freeway were shut down do to hail, but we didn’t even have sprinkles.
No more Photobucket images in comments?
It looks like you can still add Photobucket images in comments.
I used the direct link selection to get the URL, then used <img src=”url” />
Thanks Paddy. Nothing working for me. Even your img disappeared when I looked at the code in edit, without changing it. I tried copy and pasting it into a comment and it disappears there too. I have no clue.
Yeah, I did that through the dashboard. It’s actually been the only way that I have been consistently successful in posting images in comments for quite some time now.
OK, I can post images in comments but only if I go through the dashboard, edit, and then use the “img” button. I can’t post them as a comment or they disappear, even the same code it seems.
copied the code from the edit and posted it in the reply and it disappears. It seems I can’t post code in comments, only in the edit page. Is it like that for others?
Here’s an image just for Fatwa, taken from the intertoobz, not Photobucket:
Obviously Fatwa has some special pull with Jerry to keep me from posting capodimonte pictures.
And now it works!
I was digging around in the WP documentation and saw that you can enter an image URL and it will be converted to an image link, auto-magically. Maybe the all-knowing blue-glove has been adjusting settings.
I’d like a special pull, just not from Fatwa. Also, click on the camara icon when you either reply or begin a new comment. See how that works.
The camera button seems for up;oading images. Won’t that fill up the site’s space? Is there a way to use Photobucket to avoid that? I will look into what Paddy mentioned. Sorry for the bother.I am lamer.
How about a little relaxing ditty to soothe Mac’s frustrations.
Glad to see things kinda work again. Boy, that admin feller is a wonder. Good lookin I’m told, as well.
Hey, Jerry! It’s good to see you here! How’s the back? How’s the house? How are the neighbors?
I like that camera icon feature!
